Although strongly influenced by the ancient Greeks, Roman pottery has its own characteristics, which are reflected in the works of local masters. The vessels are made mainly on a potter’s wheel and have various shapes – amphorae, bowls, cups, lamps, building ceramics (tiles, water pipes, etc.). The decoration, most often on the edges of the vessel, is made of embossed cord-shaped belts, placed by hand. The lead glaze used by the Romans was a contribution to the development of ceramic production.
The replica artifact embeds genuine relief and detail. It’s stamped with the museum’s name and signature. This is a reproduction of the original relic in order to duplicate it for open and honest purposes. Such duplicates are made where the original is very rare and replacement is impossible. Reproductions of an ancient relic permit it to be displayed at more than one location or to be handled by the public.
